    I make strawberry “jam” but we actually put a few spoonfulls over ice cream instead… so really it is secretly an ice cream topping 😉

    I like to make cupcakes in jars, because they are so easy to transport. It’s also handy to make single-serve homemade pudding cups in jars. Thanks for the giveaway!
